"Fierce" is right.

So the for me much-missed Aria Martinez does not appear, but opens up another talent by suggesting this story, and what an intriguing one!
I know intrepid director/writer John Connor is a fast worker but it still seems incredible how he interpreted this and then shot it in three days.
And the bonus is that this was done entirely in the glorious outdoors.
Gia Diablo (whose greatest strength has been to deal so courageously with that serious health issue from a while back) and the ever-busy Stevie Fox do really good work here.
In a no-holds set-to, we have Stevie vs Gia and Stevie vs, er, Stevie. One of her is an Alien.
Is it that we're never absolutely sure which is which? What a shock for confused Gia to think that it might actually be her friend who wants to kill her rather than the more placid 'clone' version).
I think it clarifies a bit at the end but maybe there's a twist looming for another episode?
Aria's bizarre plot opens up more possibilities. May we hope to see her put in a guest appearance too?
Also, please keep sending ideas, e.g., perhaps like of the Groundhog Day variety!

John Connor wrote to me and pointed out that although an unseen alien force seizes Stevie early on and reproduces two of her, she does not re-materialise as an Alien in either case.
She comes back as Stevie, but now the clones one and two of her have opposite natures.
One is mild, and the other is decidedly malevolent. Aria's contribution was to pitch the idea of 2013's similar
ENEMY WITHIN filmed in the same spot and in which she played the Stevie type role, but it's all John's work from there on.
Even before that there's a similar idea he developed for DOUBLE VISION which I consider to be an early classic.
Sorry for any misconceptions readers may have had from my writeup above.
